What is the primary purpose of a laser fume extractor?

The primary purpose of a laser fume extractor, like Filtrabox's model, is to capture the fumes generated during laser engraving, cutting, or marking and recirculate purified, clean air back into the work environment. This improves indoor air quality and ensures a safer workspace.

What are laser fumes made up of?

Laser fumes comprise two primary components: respirable dust and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Are simple dust collectors sufficient for handling laser fumes?

No, simple dust collectors are not enough. A comprehensive fume extraction solution designed explicitly for laser fumes is required.

What kind of lasers generate respirable dust?

All laser marking, engraving, and cutting systems—including CO2, fiber, and YAG lasers—generate respirable dust.

What is the risk associated with respirable dust?

Respirable dust particles are so small (2.5 microns and less in diameter) that they can penetrate deep into the lungs and pose increased health risks.

How effective are Filtrabox's HEPA filters?

 Filtrabox uses high-performance HEPA filters tested at H14, which is 99.99% at 0.3 microns. It captures virtually all respirable dust particles, producing extremely clean air.

Can the dust particles be seen with the naked eye?

Given their small diameter, individual dust particles are usually invisible to the naked eye but can often be seen as smoke in high concentrations.

Why is a three-stage, high-efficiency filter arrangement important?

A three-stage, high-efficiency filter arrangement ensures comprehensive capture of respirable dust and VOCs, making the air dust-free and free from harmful organic compounds.

Is Filtrabox's fume extractor suitable for all laser applications?

Filtrabox's fume extractor is excellent for all laser applications, including engraving and cutting.

How does a fume extractor like Filtrabox improve indoor air quality?

By capturing laser fumes directly from the source and recirculating purified, clean air back into the work environment, Filtrabox's fume extractor significantly improves indoor air quality.
